Yes, leg #8 and Moh Creek are ok in LNM. It tells me:

05-RTMM Addons

No strip at all. After some flyover you will find a place to land.
Did you try to open the leg starting at Moh Creek and other in LNM?

Hi, just want to show with how few gadgets this is possible. This is a Teensy 3.2 Arduino compatible microcontroller. It can handle up to 7 rotary encoders (including the button presses) or 4 dual encoders. Together with a tiny Lua Script it can control various values in P3D.

The price of the Teensy is $20, a digital encoder is $1.

Now I just need some 3D-printed case to make a permanent installation. I'M not into 3D printing, but my son is. I will ask him to print something for me and then show it here.


I'm not as far in this route, but I loaded leg #5 and indeed LittleNavMap does not show anything at Ray's Cabin.

Is there at all a strip?

Finished MFC 0051, nice trip. Landing at Rays Cabin was tricky. Little NavMap had a problem with Moh  creek. There was no ICAO record for Moh Creek in it. I did a little ADE file, but I could not even load the departing leg! I loaded the whole route and deleted the other waypoints and changed the starting waypoint to the new ICAO.
Did no other had this problem?

Lets summarize this and the solution.

The default Prepar3D v4 Add-ons location is at location >>  drive:\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons\

So if an add-on is in that folder it will be read by the sim.. (If there is a valid add-on.xml file in an add-on folder..

Now the curve. If you don't have your add-ons in the default  drive:\documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons\
or drive:\documents\Prepar3D v5 Add-ons\   folders then you MUST direct the sim to that alternate location(s) or the sim won't the add-on.

IF in Peter's case, all, or some of your add-ons are not in the default add-on location (as was the case in Peter's set up (His on S: drive in folder \P3Dv4 Add-ons

Then you must force or direct the sim to see the designated custom add-on folder location.

To do this you need to add a discovery path entry in the add-ons.CFG file located in
hidden folder  C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4.

In Peters case the entry would read:

IE:  add the following:

[DiscoveryPath.x]                    <<< (where x = the next DiscoveryPath. entry number]
PATH=S:\P3Dv4 Addons\
TITLE=P3Dv4 Addons

Save the file. Then start the sim and it should now read the S:\P3Dv4 Addons\ as specified in the add-on.cfg and reads the valid add-on.xml files for any add-ons inside that drive\folder location as well as the default location. 

So anyone who want their add-ons on another drive or folder that is not the sim's default add-on location add a discovery path entry to direct the sim to scan that location for add-ons.

Problem solved.

Thanks to Norm, Misty's Place now appears before my eyes!
I'll do some more testing, but I think this has nailed it.

The the entire issue seems to have been it was looking in the wrong place for my setup (my P3D Addons is at S:P3D Addons, not the default C:/Documents location).
So a tweak to the xml file redirected all the bits and they now talk happily to each other.

I hope this helps some others!

Many thanks yet again Norm.

Thank you Norm. Because of the extremely well done tours and the nice locations it is a great pleasure to fly for RTMM. The next 1000 hours are waiting to be done.
